Cornish baker, James Barnecutt, from Barnecutt’s bakery visited The Children’s Trust to see how the money raised by UK bakers in this year’s National Doughnut Week was being spent after winning a competition.

Throughout National Doughnut Week in May this year, participating bakeries were entered into a prize draw to win a weekend break in London, which included a visit to The Children’s Trust, courtesy of sponsors BakeMark.

Around £30,000 was raised from the event, which is in its 17th year.

“It was a truly moving experience to actually visit The Children’s Trust and see just how bakers can make a difference year on year,” said Barnecutt. “I feel even more inspired to boost the doughnut sales next year now.”

National Doughnut Week 2009 will take place between 9 and 16 May. For further information and to register for next year’s event, email:
